The advantages of optoacoustic imaging are:

The disadvantages of optoacoustic imaging are:

Standard optical imaging using diffuse light and optoacoustic imaging are complimentary. Optical imaging provides good information about the conservation of optical energy. Optoacoustic imaging provides good information about edges of objects. Combining these strengths, the assignment of absorbed optical energy specifed by optical imaging to the spatially defined object specified by optoacoustic imaging should allow accurate spectroscopic imaging of an object.
